Interesting engine mount configuration.
Reminds me of the Dornier Do 28:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dornier_Do_28
It's been done
This allows the engines to be closer together which should improve controllability on one engine and reduce Vmc.
Looks pretty sweet. I take it the props are fix pitched?
Just an overgrown CriCri.
That's exactly what it is. I thought it was dumb when Dornier did it and it's dumb now. It looks like a lot of CG issues for little to no benefit.
Wanna build a high wing twin? This is how to do it-
What the heck is that?
I like it,interesting concept. Want to see what it comes in for price.
Somebody's idea of the best bush plane ever designed.
My google-fu indicates that it is called the DoubleEnder. Neat!
Yep, that's the one.
I think we can see where the Jabiru Twin concept came from
3 jaiburu engineers drinking beer.
engineer 1: Seems like twins are hard to see out of, the cowlings are in the way.
engineer 2: The seneca has to be the worst
engineer 3: Nah, we can do better than that
Engineer 4: Our engines fail all the time, so I think people should take two along.
Wonder if building a twin that way is a bad idea or just so ugly they never sell, so smart companies don't build them that way.
Generally speaking, with the push/pull configuration, it's pretty inefficient as the rear engine is having to bite into air that is quite disturbed by the front engine. Plus there can be cooling issues.
As to the design of the Jabiru setup the main issue would be dealing with that much weight being so far forward on the plane. I suspect that issue wouldn't be so bad if the whole airplane were designed from the start with that in mind. Trying to bolt that onto an existing design would likely result in quite a bit of sacrifice trying to sort out the CG.
Looks like an NTSB report in the making......
well you do have to consider where it's made
